Changes of the Vistula River External Delta in the period of 2009-2014
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study is to determine the state and changes of the Vistula Canal (Wisła Przekop) external delta relief, in the period of 2009-2014, and in relation to the assessment of the conditions of free runoff of the Vistula River waters. This is an important element for assessing the effectiveness of flood prevention in the area of Żuławy. The basis of the study are detailed bathymetry monitoring and morphometric measurements of the external delta with the supply channel. Modern equipment was used (mainly RTK and DGPS specialist navigation systems and multibeam echosounder), providing the obtainment of a digital model of the seabed surface, with decimeter accuracy of location points. In subsequent years, a series of bathymetric maps for the scale of 1:10 000 was made, as well as relief maps and maps of differential changes of the relief. The observed significant changes in the nature of the relief (with relatively small changes in the contours of the delta), indicate their important role in shaping the conditions of free runoff Vistula waters.
